Banjara is written by the great saint poet Kabir who expressed the deepest Truth in the most simple language and whose poetry is as relevant today as it was in his times.


Chakki chal rahi, Kabira baitha royee
Dono pud ke beech me saajha na nikle koi
Chakki chal rahi Kabira baitha joyee
Khoonta pakdo nij naam ka
To sajha nikle jo soyee

Chhod ke mat jaao ekli re
Banjara re Banjara re
Door des ka hai maamla
Ab jaago pyaara re

Apna Saahebne mahal banayee ,banjara re
Gehri gehri haye been bajai, banjara ho

Apna Saahebne baag banayee, banjara re
Phool bhari layee chhab re, banjara ho

Kahat Kabira Dharmidas ko
Sant amrapur maalna, banjara re


The millstone of life goes on moving, Kabir weeps
Between the layers of truth and untruth, no one is spared
The millstone of life goes on moving, Kabir observes
He who holds the anchor of His name, will always remain unhurt!

Dont leave me now, O Breath, I am a wanderer!
Still have to travel faraway lands
O the one who is asleep, awake!

Our Master has made this body like a palace,
And He played the instrument of breath within!

Our Master has made this body like a garden,
And how He' s filled it with a bowl of flowers!

Says Kabir he who follows the truth
Will attain the kingdom of immortality!
